Tin Figure Museum Goslar –

an experience en miniature

 
In an 18th-century watermill in the middle of the Historic Town of Goslar you will encounter many tin figures – emperors, bishops, miners etc. – and they will all tell you their stories of history. They will show you their day-to-day and working lives, which traditions they have and how they celebrate. Here, you can discover the influential history of Goslar and the Harz region, shaped by mining, and experience the World Heritage Site Mines of Rammelsberg, Historic Town of Goslar and Upper Harz Water Management System in miniature.

You can also visit exciting special exhibitions and can cast your own tin figure to take home with you.
